As the nursing industry emerges re-shaped by the biggest recessions in history, the glut and breadth of opportunities now available to recent recipients of medical degree or certifications paint a rich picture of nursing in America. It’s among the hottest careers in our country. One university that is set on equipping students for all those options is Simmons College.
Simmons College offers nationally accredited programs in nursing, nutrition and health promotion and physical therapy, as well as programs in health professions education, a dual degree nursing program with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, online programs and advanced graduate certificates. Simmons College has joined a national academic nursing movement to combat prescription drug and opioid abuse in America by committing to educate its advanced practice registered nursing (APRN) students on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain. The commitment was featured in a White House fact sheet today, as part of the White House Champions of Change event on Advancing Prevention, Treatment and Recovery. Earlier this month, the Obama Administration asked the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s (AACN) member schools to partner with APRN programs on this initiative.
The print component of “Nurse Appreciation” is distributed within the weekend edition of USA Today in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Washington DC, Baltimore, Dallas, Boston, Pittsburgh and Cleveland, with a circulation of approximately 450,000 copies and an estimated readership of 1.3 million. The digital component is distributed through a vast social media strategy, across a system of top news sites and partner outlets.
